Tastes & Travel {Beaver Creek Resort}

This year, Brian and I “discovered” Beaver Creek Ski Resort. While this is arguably one of the best places to ski in Colorado, it was brand new to us as of a month ago. However, it has already topped our list of favorite places to ski–surpassing both Vail and Breckenridge, the other resorts we frequent. But what makes Beaver so great? Well for starters, look at that view! Beaver Creek is tucked in to the mountains allowing for a panoramic view that is nothing short of spectacular. It literally takes your breath away. Also, for someone like me (read: a beginner/intermediate skier desperately trying to improve), the steep grade of most runs at Beaver allows for a distinct challenge and limited options for taking the “easy way out”. In two days at Beaver Creek this season, I feel as though I have improved significantly more than two seasons at Breckenridge. Thirdly, because it is further West on I-70 than several other resorts, Beaver Creek tends to stay less busy, and the lift lines are noticeably shorter.

For a resort who’s self-proclaimed motto is “Not Exactly Roughing It“, this ski town is all that it is chalked up to be and more. We are looking forward to spending more days on the slopes here next season, as well as spending some time exploring the {luxurious} village. So long, ski season–and Beaver Creek–until next year!
